At 8:30pm a twenty-six year old male suspect entered the Esso at 160 Main St in Dartmouth. The suspect appeared to be under the influence of drugs and was acting strangely. The suspect made a couple phone calls, became increasingly agitated, and was asked to leave the store by the two female employees.

The suspect locked the entrance door, then ushered, and pushed the employees behind the counter leaving them no way to leave the store unless they jumped the counter. One of the employees and a passerby called 911. When police arrived, the suspect allowed one of the employees to unlock the door.

The suspect resisted arrest and assaulted the responding officers by kicking and spitting on them.

The suspect was eventually controlled and transported to hospital to be assessed, as it appeared the suspect had ingested a large quantity of drugs. The suspect also had drugs on him when arrested.
